Artistically Inked for #FF0111

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today I'm participating in a 'new to me ' challenge. It's the Festive Friday Challenge.  Please click on either my card or the #FF0111 image to visit their blog and join the challenge.  The Festive Friday Design Team provides an 'Inspo List', the challenge is to pick 3 inspirational ideas from the list and create a card.  My 3 choices are slimline, black, white, embossing (I did heat embossing and I hope this fits)  I had hoped to do add some string but it just didn't fit this time.

My card was certainly an evolution, I had a completely different idea in my brain as I started to create, one that involved metallic paper, but alas the new Parakeet Party won out.  There's nothing like black to highlight a new colour!

Assembly & Trix:

*  My slimline card measures 8 1/2 x 4, I like this size because there's lots of room to play with a design or create open space, and it fits a standard business envelope or you can easily create your own envelope - yes I must do a YouTube video on this - hummm :) 

*  There's really no *Trix to this card, simply die cut two sets of leaves using the Artistic Dies, #155371 and trim a bit off one set.  Then line it up on the card, easy peasy and effective.  

*  Heat Emboss the sentiment using white from the Basics Stampin' Emboss™ Powders #155554 and fussy cut cut, then adhere to the card base with dimensionals. 

*  Embellish with the 2022 -2024 in Color™ Matte Decorative Dots 159186 & the Matte Black Dots, #154284
